Alice Boyle

fiddle, viola

Alice is known for her joyful fiddle style and inventive harmonies. Formerly a professional violist, she left that behind to immerse herself in the tunes and fiddle styles of traditional North American and the British Isles. Embracing old and new approaches, her inventive twists and turns lend a bright top end to the band’s driving dance tunes and her harmonic sensibilities add depth to more contemplative sets. When she’s not playing fiddle, she teaches and researches birds in the tropics and the prairies.
